    Stupid Question - HTC Desire

    I am the proud owner of an HTC Desire and I love it except that I cannot work out how or if I can use one of my 'ringtones' for the text message notification. I managed to import my special ringtones for various people and have set those up appropriately, but they don't appear in the list of message tones - can anyone help?
    How can I have a phone that doesnt alert me to messages by sounding the Star Trek communicator?

    These instructions make a bit more sense.

    Guide- Add custom ringtones and notifications to your Android device | This Android Life

    I found i needed to reboot after placing the files to force a media scan.

    Great thread as I too got a desire yesterday. First q, if I am connected to wifi, when downloading apps does it use this by default or do I have to change it somewhere.

    If you've a wifi connection then all traffic flows through that by default - no need to change anything elsewhere

    I love my HTC Desire although the LG weren't too impressed as Lady Gaga's Born This Way started blaring out mid-meeting as I'd forgotten to mute the phone and it was set as the ringtone....

    ;-)

    Android still doesn't officially have a proxy option.

    However various custom ROMs and apps are available with Proxy support.

    I think you can do it with the stock rom if you are rooted.

    also Opera browser has authenticated proxy support on non rooted phones.
